Hmm… Shock Claim: Obama Only Wants Military Leaders Who ‘Will Fire on U.S. Citizens’

Dr. Jim Garrow, the author of The Pink Pagoda: One Man’s Quest to End Gendercide in China, made the following claim on Facebook this week that is getting a whole lot of attention.
The Examiner reported:

On Monday, renowned author and humanitarian Dr. Jim Garrow made a shocking claim about what we can expect to see in Obama’s second term.

Garrow made the following Facebook post:

I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not.” Those who will not are being removed.

So, who is the source?

Garrow replied: “The man who told me this is one of America’s foremost military heroes.”

Hmm… It’s a stretch to believe Obama would want to fire on all US citizens. But, if Garrow is just talking about Republicans he might be on to something. It would be interesting to hear who his source was for the post.

    So, is this the real reason for removing General Jim Mattis of Cent Com? I think the Obama Administration sees this window of opportunity and they are going for it. I think we’re going to see blood shed in the streets soon. This man is evil personified. Charming on the outside, evil through and through.

    I think it’s a stretch. It’s more of a stretch to believe that the military would be used on US Citizens. But the fact that this has legs, that it isn’t laughed off the floor, is a very good indicator of how distrusted The Treasonous Criminal Zerobama is. It indicates broad acceptance of the concept that he is capable of this.

    It may be a stretch, but we still must maintain the means to defend Liberty. Molon Labe.

    Of course, the important question to ask is “Will the soldiers follow a command to shoot U.S. citizens?” I’m pretty sure they are taught not to obey a command from a superior if the command is illegal.

  • serfer62

    Most officers will side with the govorment in excuting Americans and almost all starred officers will anyway.

    The big IF are the ranks and I doubt that they will comply

    To Quote from someone who’s lived it:

    “Today’s American intellectuals are retracing the steps of their Soviet predecessors in the early days of the socialist dictatorship. Having had hopes to see the workers’ paradise in their lifetime, many came to regret their misguided enthusiasm, as they themselves fell victim to the popular illusions they helped to induce, when a mere slip of a tongue, a drunken remark, or an accusation by someone in the new generation of socialist intellectuals who wanted to take their job, wife, or apartment, led them to be lumped with any of the large assortment of the thoroughly demonized and dehumanized ‘enemies of the people.’ ”

    “In a society shaped by the government’s mind games of manipulative illusions, a dissenter sticks out like a sore thumb. Once the resistance has been demonized, its members will be quickly identified and denounced by the compliant citizenry, labeled as the enemy, and be dealt with by law enforcement.”

    “This is what made it easy for Stalin to purge his opponents: by the time he charged them with treason, the orchestrated media coverage had already made them universally hated.”

    Christ! Don’t you get it! He’ll push the America’s Right and the gun owners until they show up in armed protest – then he’ll start shooting. The media will back him up for facing the “terrorists”. Obama WANTS a Tiananmen Square for the US.

    As reported in Chicago Jish News, “Obama is the first Jish President.” See:

    Also see, “How the Juice took the White House” at:

    http://www.real Zionist news dot com slast ?p=461

    We must remember that Obama is an illegal alien and the cases against him have all been fixed by the Juice lobby. He is a Manchurian President, owned and operated by his Jish masters. They have installed this scum bag to steal trillions of dollars and to destroy Whites and America by proxy.

    The litmus test of an independent and moral soldier is the extreme desire to fire on Obama, an illegal alien posing as President, a criminal who has trespassed into the White House, aided and abetted by a corrupt Judiciary.

    Only when the Army will stand up and rebel, will Obama and the Demogangsters will feel that people had had it and then and only then they will stop their crime spree against the nation.

  • RKflorida

    It’s not a stretch at all Jim. Obama knows what the push for taking the guns from the citizens will result in, and he is doubling down and pushing governors and mayors to enact unbelievable restrictions on the 2nd amendment rights of the citizens.

    The comments from the entire spectrum of the left is clear, if you can’t disarm the gun nuts, kill them. This is not an evolving meme, it is a scheduled action.

  • Anono

    Is this Alex Jones or GWP?

  • great unknown

    Frightening if true, but not without precedent. American troops fired on American citizens under Washington [the Whiskey Rebellion] and Lincoln [Draft Riots]. Since our Fearless Leader thinks of himself as on that level, why not him also?

  • thescribbler

    This is not new, they asked this question during the first campaign. People didn’t believe anyone would have the gall to ask such a thing of our military leaders and it was, as so many things with this administration, brushed aside as conservative propaganda.

    Why so many people are still blinded by these people is beyond me. It’s not like they hide anything (other than the people who were at Benghazi, Libya when our Ambassador was MURDERED). They tend to throw things out and normal, rational, patriotic people believe and fight to get the word out. While the people who support O and his ilk spend time snuffing the arguments out and moving the information on to the back pages and out of the limelight. The media conspired with the Left on Obama, they gave him his throne and they ultimately are to blame when Obama does become dictator. Is that so hard to believe after all that has happened in the past five years, do you even remember hearing the name Barack Obama before then?

    Our hope is the men and women in our military who are going to say no to orders given to shoot upon the American people.

  • lincoln’s widow

    If there is any validity at all to this ridiculous “claim” then it would be aimed at those citizens that have decided to join terrorists against the USA, residing around the world. It has already happened ya know, American citizens operating with terrorists, at their own peril. The rest of this conspiratorial nonsense being posted here is absurd.

  • MAJMike

    As a retired Army O-4, I find this chilling to say the least. This is exactly why the Founders hated the thought of a standing professional army. Similiar situation led to the demise of the Roman Republic when soldiers were more loyal to their ambitious commanders than to the Constitution (written or unwritten).

    I just returned from the pistol range. Lots of folks there. Next week, I’ll practice with one of my Evil Black Rifles. The EoTech sights are zeroed for 100 yards and I’ll practice head shots.

    Interesting times.

    Copied from the comments section (Huitzilopochtli Adams) of this link to be posted here:


    This ten-page assessment is likely one of the most frightening documents released by the Obama administration.

    It’s as though “gun control” has been planned and prepared for since O was inaugurated in 2009, and, astonishingly, only specific groups and individuals have been cited, those traditionally to the right of center with a special emphasis on returning vets (all believed by O to be “lone wolves”). Vets returning from the theatre of war and seeking counseling, of any kind, (from Obama-complicit military doctors) are being summarily diagnosed with PTSD. This will disqualify them from any kind of gun ownership.

    Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment

    7 April 2009

    Page 2: The possible passage of new restrictions on firearms and the return of military veterans facing significant challenges reintegrating into their communities could lead to the potential emergence of terrorist groups or lone wolf extremists capable of carrying out violent attacks.

    Footnote, Page 2: Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.

    Page 3: Proposed imposition of firearms restrictions and weapons bans likely would attract new members into the ranks of rightwing extremist groups, as well as potentially spur some of them to begin planning and training for violence against the government. The high volume of purchases and stockpiling of weapons and ammunition by rightwing extremists in anticipation of restrictions and bans in some parts of the country continue to be a primary concern to law enforcement.

    Returning veterans possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to rightwing extremists. DHS/I&A is concerned that rightwing extremists will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to boost their violent capabilities.

    Pentagon, Military Actively War Gaming ‘Large Scale Economic Breakdown’ and ‘Civil Unrest’

    Compared to the destruction Obama has planned for his second term, today’s dismal economy will soon be remembered as the good old days.

    [………………………]There were three participants in the experiment:

    1. The Teacher was the real subject in the experiment. Their role was to administer shocks for each wrong answer provided by the learner. How far would they go, was the true subject of the experiment. Would they actually kill a person for failing to provide the correct answer on a word pair test? Would they mindlessly follow the orders of the experimenter to continue with the abuse, regardless of the results and obvious harm being perpetrated upon the pretend victim in the experiment?

    2. The second participant, the Learner, was actually a plant in the experiment. The Learner would sit in an adjacent room and pretend to be shocked for each wrong answer that they would purposely give. Eventually, they would cry out for help and beg the Teacher to stop administering the electric shocks. Their cries included pleas of mercy that were often based on an unknown level of self-expressed cardiac distress that they were pretending to experience.

    3. The Experimenter was a stern looking fellow who carried a clipboard, wore a lab coat, and would urge the Teacher to continue regardless of the make believe pleas of the Learner.

    The “Teachers” were told by the experimenter that they would be participating in an experiment to test the effects of punishment on learning. However, as has already been stated, this was not the goal of the experiment.

    Hitler’s last guest for total dictatorial power was purging of the German military of any factions that were not loyal to him…homeland security buying tons of ammo and other gov agencies buying up tons of ammos… have to ask yourself what are they planning and who are they planning on using all this ammo on…….

  • Anthony Cappelletti

    Gatewaypundit going down the conspiracy path. *sigh*

  • coupd’état

    This is NOT hard to believe as some above seem to think. However, the Generals will not be fired back upon so what do they care. They ARE aware that theirs’ is a lost war. Not to worry. The traitors coming into command are the military equivalent of today’s genxers… Not capable of getting the job done. We have the tied a true heroes on our side. As they say (those that say it) “Molon Labe”.

  • Marcy

    Everyone keep your cool. Don’t shoot until you see the whites of their eyes. They have to fire the first shot. The military will never turn against the people. After all they have their own families here. They understand too well about collateral damage. They won’t let that happen to their family and friends.
